Jin Young Choi, a native of South Korea, is Assistant Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School. She is also a fellow at the Louisville Institute.Dr. Choi’s vocation is to form future leaders of the church and society, who are learned, pastoral, and prophetic. One of the foci in her teaching is to introduce students to global perspectives and readings of the Bible. In her forthcoming book, Postcolonial Discipleship of Embodiment: An Asian and Asian American Feminist Reading of the Gospel of Mark (Palgrave Macmillan), Choi engages with invisible, placeless, and voiceless others in the Gospel and thereby illuminates the subjectivity of the displaced in the transnational context. As in this work, her research interests involve the intersection of early Christian studies, feminist studies, and ethnic-racial studies, as well as cultural studies with particular emphases on the body and affect. Choi earned her master’s and doctoral degrees in New Testament and Early Christianity at Vanderbilt University and holds master’s degrees from Emory University and from Ewha University and Presbyterian Seminary in Seoul, South Korea.
